Travel Nursing Arizona

The most important things to bring with you to Arizona are sunscreen and a love of nature. All of the beauty and wonder of Arizona lies in the hands of Mother Nature. From its vast deserts to its fertile plains, Arizona is loaded with warm and vibrant color schemes, making it the perfect outdoor getaway.

The summer months are characterized by warm days and comfortable nights; cooling down into the winter months. Some of the marvelous sights in Arizona include the Grand Canyon, the red rock country of Sedona, Montezuma’s Castle, and of course, the London Bridge in Lake Havasu. Once you’ve had your fill of nature, explore the culture in the state capital of Phoenix, which offers many museums and the Phoenix Botanical Garden.

Arizona Travel Nurse Photos and Stories

Just Too Much to Explore!

  • Cathy T, RN
  • Grand Canyon, Arizona

I am working Labor & Delivery in Chinle, Arizona on the Navajo Reservation. My original assignment was for 13 weeks, but I extended because there is just too much to explore in the area! My favorite photogenic place so far is Monument Valley, the scene of many western movies and car commercials! John Wayne made his film 'Stagecoach' here as well as other John Ford movies.

We took a tour with Benny, a Navajo guide, and he took us onto the back roads into majestic rock formations. One we visited is called 'Big Hogan,' named after its resemblance to the shape of a traditional Navajo dwelling, complete with a smoke hole on the top. We also met Susie Yazzie, a 92-year-old native woman who was in the movies here with 'The Duke.' She still weaves traditional rugs and demonstrated the technique for us.

The other photos are from Canyon de Chelly (just 5 minutes from where I'm staying), Mesa Verde Colorado and Hubbell Trading post in Ganado, Arizona (30 minutes from Chinle).

Hiking up to Moony Falls

  • Sonja D, RN
  • Grand Canyon, Arizona

During my extended assignment in Phoenix, Arizona, I was able to visit the Grand Canyon twice! The first time hiking the rim of the canyon it snowed. The second trip 3 months later I hiked 10 miles down into the canyon to the Indian village of Havasupai, which means "people of the blue-green water".

I am pictured here sitting at Moony Falls and again at Havasu Falls at the bottom of the canyon. The water is as clear as the Caribbean, but as cold as glacier water all year round. Adventure is where you find it!

He Proposed and I Said Yes...

  • Sonja D, RN
  • Grand Canyon, Arizona

I began travel nursing last year after my lakefront home outside New Orleans was completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Besides losing my house, the hospital where I worked for many years was severely damaged. In one morning I lost my home, many friends, all my neighbors and my beloved job. I was completely displaced. After working briefly as a relief nurse on the storm ravaged Gulf Coast I decided it was time to hit the road as a travel nurse. With two grown children and my youngest a few months away from starting college, I felt it was a good time in my life to start something new.

I had an interest in travel nursing and am naturally adventurous. I enjoy skydiving, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and anything outdoors. I decided to go to Arizona where I had friends, and I went to work at a welcoming hospital with a friendly, professional staff. I was happy with my new life and decided to extend my contract. I then found even more happiness when I met a gentleman, Cliff. He soon became my best friend and several months later proposed, and I said yes!

I know that adventure and happiness are where you find it. I am grateful for the opportunities and serendipity travel nursing has brought me.
